The Aberdeen-based Press and Journal newspaper has published its last edition in a broadsheet format.

The Press and Journal - dating back to 1747 - has had a Saturday tabloid for several years, and then introduced the smaller version on Mondays.

Editor Damian Bates said the format had been well received by readers and would be used each day of the week in future.

The Press and Journal is a regional daily for the north and north east of Scotland.

The paper used the edition to dispel the myth that its headline on news of the Titanic sinking 100 years ago was 'North-east man lost at sea'.

The actual headline was 'Mid-Atlantic Disaster'.
